You may applaud the folks you see out cleaning up the beach this coming Saturday morning, but they're doing more than picking up garbage.

The Alliance for the Great Lakes Adopt-a-Beach cleanups are also an opportunity to collect data about what's littering our beaches and why.  Volunteers will determining how much trash is on the beach, what it's made up of, where it was found and how much it all weighs, and that information could help improve the health of all the Great Lakes.
